Comments about Martin M130 Silk And Steel Folk Acoustic Guitar Strings:

"I have been a dedicated Silk n Steel user for almost two years now. I have used a few other brands to compare; Elixers, regular SPs, D'Addario, Ernie Ball, John Pearse. The only strings that came close were the Elixers, which I had heard so much about. Yes, they were much more bright than the Silk n Steels, but I did not agree with the claim to longevity, for while they did stay in tune they quickly turned from their bright ring to a dull hum, where they Silk n Steels keep an overall mellow flow for the same if not longer length of time. Also, the Elixers felt very slippery and did not perform any better than the Silk n Steels on reduction of sliding squeak, hammer on quality, or bend clarity as I was led to believe they would. Both strings did however way out perform the rest in all areas. What I love the most about these strings is their mellow yet bright and defined sound. I put them on my Fender DG-25s cedar top and they really seem to bring out the true warmth of cedar that first attracted me to it. Granted, the fact that I play cedar does say something about my preference for mellow tone where most people would probably like a spruce with big bright Elixers, but I dont like my guitar to overpower a song. These are definatly FOLK STRINGS and that is their charm, they lend a lovely classical warmth to a steel guitar. They will probably not be your favorite if you like to strum it hard on a country jam, but for those deep fingerpicking love ballads with the fluttering high notes these strings will be your best friends."
